This arch is visible from the freeway/highway/expressway/dual-carriage way/ motorway. That's "autopista" for those of you who speak Spanish. It's about 2 hours from Madrid, going north. If you're paying attention you'll see it high on the hill on your left. What is it? Where is it? Who built it?
Advice: There is a great little village up there too. You should go there and walk around sometime. A UEM student years ago said his family was going to open a "Casa Rural", a rustic Country Inn, a Bed & Breakfast place up by the plaza. I wonder if they did? I'll have to go again someday and find out.
More Advice: Look at Spanish History, January 2013 and Spanish History 2, February 2013 on SHAKESPEARE SLEPT HERE. Do you recognize those places too?
